Representative Text

1 Just where He needs me, there would I be,
Working for Jesus who died for me;
Thro’ disappointment or victory,
Just where He needs me most!

Refrain:
Just where He needs me most,
Just where He needs me most;
His work to do, faithful and true,
Just where He needs me most.

2 Just where He needs me! He goes before;
Just where He needs me, till life is o’er;
Till I shall see Him on heaven’s shore,
Just where He needs me most! [Refrain]

3 Just where He needs me by day or night;
Just where He needs me—into the fight,
Or wait for orders; He leads aright,
Just where He needs me most! [Refrain]

4 Just where He needs me! He knows the way,
So would I follow my Lord today;
Where Jesus wants me, there would I stay,
Just where He needs me most! [Refrain]
